Guacamole – Traditional Mexican

GIMG_3459

This is one of the healthiest Mexican appetizers out there. It whips up in minutes and while usually served with corn chips, try it as a dip for bite size sweet peppers, celery and cucumbers (crudités). When buying avocados, make sure they are ripe by giving them a gentle squeeze. If they dent slightly, then they are just right. I also find white onion works best. Include the jalapeno seeds for more intensity.
